Institute

Institute of Water Structures

Prerequisites

Physics, hydraulics, mathematics, specialized courses of water management

Planned educational activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations.

Objective

Improvement of hydraulics, particulary of flow with complicated structure. Gain knowledge is applicable in designing and mainly research activities together with application of mathematical models of fluid flow.
